the ultimate no cook banana pudding

Recipe by

Several years ago I went to an outdoor BBQ party and one of the guests made banana pudding. When I tasted it I asked her the secret. She told me the crushed pineapples. I later added the pecan because it then tastes like a banana split and gives it great texture. I use Greek yogurt sometimes because it gives the pudding a tanginess. This will be a hit with all your friends and family and makes a great dish to bring to any potluck!
